noon today the mlb is expected to ban a-rod through the 2014 season for alleged connections to a florida clinic that administered performance-enhancing drugs. joe girardi confirmed a-rod will play his first game of the season tonight at the chicago white sox. jay gray has more on the mlb announcement. >> reporter: we expect the announcement around noon. a-rod not the only player involved here. we expect 12 to 14 major leaguers will receive suspensions. most of those 50-game suspensions which will have them banned for the rest of the season. for a-rod it looks like more than 200 games, through the 2014 season, they say because of evidence that shows he used performance-enhancing drugs for at least three seasons and then tried to interfere with the investigation into biogenesis, that anti-aging clinic that is allegedly provided these major league players with the performance-enhancing drugs. a-rod has said he will continue to fight any suspension and that he will join the team in chicago and play tonight during an appeal. it looks like that, in fact, will be the case. it looks
a deal. m.l.b. has to have something right. i think they have probably everything right. just a second, bill. m.l.b., they were trying to have a, you know, this deal with a-rod. m.l.b. says he obstructed the investigation. that is a very big deal. and, of course, a-rod, if he was a biogenesis boy to the max and using this stuff for several years, my goodness, is baseball going to get serious or not? are they going to send a message not just around the league but to kids that their role models are going to be caught? this is a major watershed for major league baseball. i think it's terrific what they're doing and i think a-rod deserves the brunt of all of this. >> bill rhoden, go ahead. you know i love you, christine. this is not about lifetime achievement. this is not a lifetime achievement award. this is about this specific penalty. this is about this specific incident. it's not about everything else. you know, you go back to that list, about four or five years ago there were 99 people on a list, supposedly people who flunkedded the test. the only name, the only name that came out was
report it states that a-rod and the mlb, quote, aren't anywhere close to a deal to avoid a lifetime ban for him. sources telling espn if rodriguez does not agree, he will have to fight the league through arbitration and while it's not clear the length of suspension either side would accept, a-rod is said to fight it mainly in an attempt to salvage more than the 100 million dollars on his contract. joining me now is dave briggs of nbcnz@tz sports network. this has a lot of people scratching their heads because if the mlb has the evidence it needs against a-rod and the b biogenesis gajeds why not pull the trig. and deal with it. >> the lifetime ban? >> the lifetime ban and making everybody suffer through there. >> the lifetime ban is a massive overreach. no chance major league baseball gets that. that is like a divorcee asking for the house and the money and the dog. you know you're not going to get it. you know you want that 200-game suspension probably the rest of this year, all of next year. >> his age and his condition isn't that a lifetime ban there? >> it is. you would be coming bac
association by no means was that softening there for the statement from michael weiner, the head of the mlb pa after the suspension was doled out where he said a-rod was not treated fairly. they think bud selig went out of his power here. they are going to fight for alex rodrigu rodriguez. >> i like bud selig. the first time the guy used drugs, he broke the rules. he got caught. then he said he wouldn't do it again. then he got caught doing it again. he tried to cover it up and now he's finally caught and appealing. why would you take his side? why would anybody take his side unless they were a union shop steward. >> in this case, that's the case. does anybody who's objective take his side? >> it's not a matter of taking rodriguez' side. he is due rights. he was not going to take the medicine that major league baseball was doling out, swallow it and in essence ending his career. you don't think he's coming out after being out of baseball for two years and say you know what, i'll take my $61 million and go home. in all due respect to bud selig and the owners, baseball profited during the years
me, san diego. >> keep it classy. >> keep it classy, san diego. >> mlb is prepared to ban a-rod for life. >> oh. >> know who is happiest about this, yankee fans. they want him to go away. >> all right. >> let's go right now to chief white house correspondent for politico mike allen here with the morning playbook. mike, the president was facing some resistance from house democrats yesterday over his possible pick for the fed chairman during yesterday's meeting. of course we had a lot of congressmen not wanting larry summers to be the next fed chairman and, in fact, one congressman, walked to the microphone and said larry summers, bad choice. president obama reportedly told the session not to believe everything they read on-line and said he was being made out to be a, quote, progressive whipping boy and added summers was the rock of gill bra tar to try to work through the policies and turn the economy around and i'm not going to stand idly by and let his name disparaged and reputation trashed because people have a political agenda about who should or should not be the chairman
. joining me now sports attorney steve olnick. >> thanks for having me. >> we don't know how much the mlb has on rodriguez but rye are there rumors of such a lengthy suspension? >> what happens is normally and typically how they get suspended is through especially in this particular instance is through the joint drug agreement but now the major league baseball is getting a little crafty and trying to go through the collective bargaining agreement whereby they're able to essentially suspend him for anything that is detrimental to the league so the process is we're going to suspend based off this evidence that who knows like you said they have in which they can have the right to suspend him. >> okay, and we know that a-rod has been, you know, quite very vociferous about that happening and what that implies if it happens. that said, steve, if he is found guilty of using performance-enhancing drugs, how much money does he still have coming at him, and can you understand how the yankees would feel like really, we have to pay him upwards of maybe $100 million for nothing? >> correct. and that's
in the penalty that mlb imposed but you didn't deny the charges. do you deny that you used p.e.d.s? >> we'll have a form to discuss all of that and we'll talk about it then. >> alex, do you feel that this is a witch hunt by major league baseball? >> a what? >> a witch hunt. >> i don't want to discuss that. i don't know what the motivation is for any of this. but i'm going to respect the process. i feel good that we have an opportunity to do that in the right platform. and we're going to state our case. >> what are the likelihoods that during the process of the appeal and you see the evidence that major league baseball may have against you, that you would drop that appeal and go on as life goes on? >> i'm sorry, repeat the first part of that question. >> what are the chances that during the appeal, you see the evidence that major league baseball has against you, they have to show you that, is it likely that you would back away from the appeal and go on and take the punishment? >> if i'm understanding your question properly, we've seen everything. again, there will be a time and a place for all of

. the all-star mvp said he had permission to use adderall from mlb but the permit ran out in april. it's the third time he tessed positive for a banned substance. this comes as a new lawyer for alex roddes said they wanted a surgeon to botch his hip surgery to avoid paying out his contract. yankees president randy levine called it bogus and urged a-rod's camp to release his medical record. >>> domestic violence victims facing eviction for calling 911. that's the battle for one woman nearly thrown out of her apartment after calling for help to stop a violent boyfriend. the reason, pennsylvania has a nuisance ordinance that says renters that call the cops three times in four months could be evicted. so she had apparently called 911 all these times and then used them all up. so the woman now is taking the town to court. >>> well, her dream was to walk down the aisle to duck calls. just imagine the look on the pennsylvania bride's faith when the star of her favorite show duck dynasty shows up at her wedding. there he is. that's willie surprising megan and her new husband charlie. he was si
